Troubled Waters: The Dynamics and Implications of Japan’s Disputes over History and Territory

Over the past twenty years Japan's relations with its closest neighbors have been increasingly troubled by rising tensions over history and territory. While these disputes are shaped by a variety of factors, including geopolitical conflict and increased competition for scarce resources, domestic political factors have promoted the development of historical narratives in China, Korea, and Japan that have disrupted diplomatic relations and fed highly emotional, antagonistic popular sentiment. These narratives are increasingly being tied to long standing territorial disputes that harbor a dangerous potential for militarized confrontation. The implications of this trend for Japan’s relations with the region are profound and have significant consequences for its relationship with the United States as well. Off-the-Record

SAIS China Club Movie Showing: Chinese Mayor

Mayor Geng is a very proactive leader of a highly polluted city, which was the capital of China 1600 years ago. His dream is to restore and replicate the ancient city, creating a tourist destination and revitalizing the local economy. The documentary follows him around on his day to day activities. The focus of the documentary is the relocation of the illegal residents in the city center, demolition of their homes, and the recreation of the ancient city. This is an important work because it documents both methods and results in the revitalization and modernization of this part of China. Mayor Geng is relentless and achieves extraordinary success, but incomplete success, by the end of the movie when he is replaced. His goal was revitalization of Datong and it is unclear whether his efforts will result in the anticipated economic growth or a huge "ghost city" with a large displaced residential population. Off-the-Record
